Same here when I ordered my icy dock for my mac pro which was advertised on there site as compatible which clearly wasnt and because it was after 28 days they would not refund me and they also advised me that if they tested it and it worked I would also get charged so just left it - only advise I was given was to sell it on ebay ( and that was not by scan, this was by EG and other people )

They do themselves no favors when they treat customers like this. They may as well merge with the likes of Comet and PC World. Two other shoddy outfits not fit for purpose.

Bit more money but have been a memoryc or aria customer, not had any support issues yet but they have always been fairly prompt and helpful
Ordered my SSD from memoryc.com ( 5 years warranty on it )

A few years ago I had a hard drive from them that developed a fault within a year (it was going clunk clunk clunk and not booting) So I arranged a return and paid the restocking fee. They had it for more than a month when I chased them on what was happening I was told fault not found. I asked for my drive to be returned to me (at my cost) and found it was still doing the clunk clunk clunk not booting thing. I complained and said that I did not believe it had been looked at and was told me they could re-examine it but I would have to pay another restocking fee. I cut my losses and have not used them since. Which is a shame because in every other factor they were superb.

To be fair, Scan are only repeating what IcyDock state on their website. Resellers do not have time to verify claims made by the manufacturer for every single product they sell.

Restock fees are just stupid. I used to work at a different reseller that charged £20 or 20%, whichever was greater! It used to anger soooo many clients but no matter what i said, they were having none of it as it was a MASSIVE company so what the big boss said went.

I got burned by scan along time ago - mid 1990's when they were first starting out.
Non deliveries / wrong parts sent. Ended up paying them a visit to get it sorted.
Since then I have refused to use them for personal or business purchases. Which means they've lost out on the opportunity of hundreds of thousands of pounds of potential business.
Surprised they are still going to be honest, I've seen many more better suppliers go to the wall.
